After replacing both soft top push rods (one was severely bent) I noticed the front edge of the clamshell was rubbing the soft top on the passenger side while closing. I adjusted the passenger side pushrod to increase the clearance but there is still not much clearance on either side (less than the width of your finger). How much should the minimum clearance be while closing the top?
I have the same problem, but have not attempted to repair it yet. The attached link gives a good description of the problem and a fix: http://www.planet-9.com/987-cayman-boxster-problems-complaints/59900-interior-door-handle-snapped.html
The pushrod ball broke, the push rod bent and eventually became lodged in the drain hole, tearing the drain tray and crushing the drain tube cup. I have not removed the drain tray yet, but this appears to be the case based on what I feel by sticking my finger in the drain hole. It appears that the cup is part of the drain tube part #98756173400. Do you agree that the cup is a part of the drain hose part #98756173400 ? Maybe they are both included in the part number, but I could just replace the teacup? Can you see the drain hose clamp ( part #99950755101 ) from above? Thanks for your reply!
wvu1978 replied to balpo's topic in 987-1 Boxster Convertible Top Issues and SolutionsAre you sure this is a correct part number? I did a Porsche part number search and could not find anything.
Does anyone know how difficult it is to replace the convertible top drain pan hose? I will be replacing the drain pan also. Can you see the hose and how to install it after the drain pan is removed? Can the hose be removed and reinstalled from above, or do you you also need access from under the car? Where is the drain hose clamp located? Is it likely to need replacement also? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
